It’s been a horrible week for fight sports activities already with the lack of the large Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov battle at UFC 223, and now we’re unhappy to report that boxing can also be taking a giant hit now with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez confirming he’s out of his huge Could fifth rematch with Gennady Golovkin.
Golden Boy president Eric Gomez made the announcement throughout a press convention in L.A. on Tuesday, stating the promotion had heard that it was unlikely Canelo was going to be cleared by the Nevada State Athletic Fee over drug assessments that exposed hint ranges of clenbuterol within the boxer’s system. Canelo’s group had argued the minuscule quantities pointed in the direction of tainted meat because the perpetrator, however the NSAC made a degree of implying Canelo would nonetheless be suspended even when that was the case when the 2 sides meet on April 18.
That’s a controversial place to take given how different doping businesses react to circumstances the place athletes have examined optimistic for clenbuterol. The UFC has had a number of circumstances since teaming up with USADA, and following an investigation they’ve issued ‘no fault’ determinations for athletes in areas the place clenbuterol tainted meat is discovered and testing returned lower than a nanogram of the substance. For reference, Canelo’s preliminary failed drug check measured Zero.6-Zero.8ng.
Because it stands, Gennady Golovkin continues to be transferring ahead with plans to battle on Could fifth towards an unknown opponent. So as of likeliness, Spike O’Sullivan, Billy Joe Saunders, and Sergiy Derevyanchenko are all doable, with Derevyanchenko utilizing his standing as a compulsory challenger for the IBF title to pressure his method into the Could fifth slot.
